About The Pack

These six reds sit right in the top echelon of the varietal category, according to James Halliday.

Each will cellar brilliantly. Each wine received at least 97 points from James Halliday.

At $55 a bottle, this may be the best mixed pack of Australian red wine you will find anywhere on the internet.

Only a limited amount of these packs are available.

2018 Sinapius Close Planted Pinot Noir

98 points

"As for all, estate-grown (12 clones), hand-picked and a lengthy wild yeast-whole berry ferment. It offers a garden of spices alongside almost casual purity of varietal fruit, but the core of this great pinot is its mouthfeel and length created by the stealth of its oh so fine yet persistent tannins. There's no bombast here, just infinite class." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

2018 By Farr Farrside Pinot Noir

97 points

"It takes time in the glass for assertive cedar wood oak to settle into the fruit but at all steps along the way this wine oozes both quality and class. You're in the most skilled of hands here. Woodsmoke, assorted cherries, twiggy spice notes, flavour-infused acidity and fine-grained tannin. It's a truly beautiful wine." - Campbell Mattinson (Halliday Wine Companion)

2018 Traviarti Nebbiolo

97 points

"The '17 was an exciting release and this '18 is at least its equal if not better. There's genuine tar here, genuine licorice root and woodsy spice, and the potent shelf of ferrous-like tannin sits within the wine rather than as an addendum. The Traviarti vineyard and onsite winery is tiny, but this release suggests that it's a star in the making." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

2018 S.C. Pannell Smart Grenache

97 points

"The provenance of the Old McDonald single vineyard comprises 76yo bushvines and is lighter and more perfumed than its sibling, the Clarendon Smart. Both excellent interpretations of their sites. This one heady with red fruits, florals, dried herbs/mint and a hint of green walnuts. There's a savoury overlay, with very fine sandpaper tannins and neat acidity sashaying across the just medium-bodied palate. Detailed, complex yet ethereal." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

2018 Duke's Vineyard Magpie Hill Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

98 points

"Deeply coloured. A superb cabernet that will be calling the shots for decades to come. Its richness is spectacular because it parallels the wine's power. Endless peaks of supple blackcurrant and cassis make light of the varietal tannins that can dog cabernet. The price rendered me speechless." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

2018 Yangarra King’s Wood Shiraz

98 points

"From the 12.3ha east-facing Block 12 on an ironstone sandy outcrop. Hand-picked, open-fermented with 25% whole bunches, matured in a 25hl French foudre for 15 months. Vivid crimson-purple through to the rim. An incredibly fresh wine that literally dances in the mouth, juicy streams of bright red flavours - this from '18, not a vintage known for delicacy. Fantastic bargain." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine.
